Inspired by an artwork she stumbled upon 2 years ago, “yin yang” by Tabitha Shafran, Asu Aksu 2014-15 AW collection prompts a contemplation of the notions balance, entitlement and interconnection. The items in the collection, Equation, are designed to interpret each of the creatures represented in the artwork.
“Equation” tells us a story about the balance between various creatures in the ecosystem, the equation that interconnects all things and our absence in this equation. Since we have no place in this equation, we alter the situation to our benefit. We are wired that way. The misconception “more is better” harms all species, including ours, with its utter lack of respect for anything but material possessions. The pain of a failing existence poisons us in luxury.
